"We have requested the national president to make Sonia Gandhi a Rajya Sabha candidate from Rajasthan. If Sonia Gandhi is made the candidate, it will boost the morale of  Congress workers," said Tikaram Julie, the leader of the opposition.

Along with Manmohan Singh, central minister Bhupinder Yadav's tenure has been completed while the third seat is of Dr Kirori Lal Meena, who is now an MLA and minister in the Rajasthan government. 

Looking at the number of MLAs in the state legislative assembly, two seats would go to BJP and one to Congress. Rajasthan has 10 seats in the Rajya Sabha with Congress on six and BJP on three seats. One seat is vacant. The coming election would increase one seat of the BJP.
